Renowned Climate Scientist Susan Solomon, Ph.D., Assessing the Physical Science of Climate Change: Key Findings of IPCC (2007), Monday, 8:00 a.m.—A leading atmospheric scientist at the Earth System Research Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Solomon is well known for her pioneering work in identifying the mechanism that produces the Antarctic ozone hole and for her many contributions toward the science of global environmental problems. Within the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), she is co-chair of Working Group I, which assesses the scientific basis of the climate system and climate change. The key findings of a new report, which are the subject of this lecture, will represent a comprehensive state-of-the-science through a rigorous multi-year assessment process involving more than 130 authors and more than 600 expert and government reviewers.
